It's officially that time of year again. Shovelling, slipping on ice, freezing your face off whenever you're outside, and all of the other not-so-joyful things brought on by winter.
TL;DR The City of Montreal will be offering 2,158 free parking spots during snow removal hours in the city. Specified areas will allow parking for free starting at 9PM and ending the next morning at 7AM. More information below.
Of course, for anyone in the city that owns a car, the worst of it all has to be finding somewhere to park during the snowy season. Luckily, it just so happens this is also the time of year when you're least likely to get a ticket.
Yes, we're all used to the super annoying parking restrictions that force you to constantly move your car from one side of the street to another for street cleaning. But now that the snow looks like it's here to stay, these worries are a thing of the past.
Instead, we now have city snow removal to look forward to and all of the free parking spots to come with it.
The City of Montreal will be making 2,158 free parking spots available in certain areas across the city. During a snow-clearing period, cars can be parked in the specified areas for absolutely free starting at 9PM. All cars must be removed from these areas the following morning by 7AM.
Multiple boroughs across the city are participating in free parking during the snow removal hours, with a few different parking options in each sector. Needless to say, this will definitely help prevent some of the seasonal grumpiness in Montreal this winter.
